How do you manage swapping tires just for one day of snow / ice when the next is warmer and its melted?
Do you swap just the tire or have an entire different wheel set?
Or leave studded on even though its not needed that day and burn the tread up?
I just grab the bike I left the studded tires on* , and where I live that may be a couple years...
I used to see the weather report, for the next day and change tires overnight ..

A harder rubber compound is used on studded tires , that helps retain the studs

*I don't own an E bike, owning 2 of those is probably not a plan.. Too far to pedal?
